Tree Surveys in Accordance with BS5837:2012

Local Authorities have a duty under planning legislation to ensure trees are protected on development site proposals. Therefore, developers must meet the planning procedures by submitting a tree survey and report to support a planning application in accordance with BS5837:2012.

A BS5837 survey enables both the developer and the Local Authority to identify the impacts of development on important trees within the proposal. It can also inform a suitable design layout at the early planning stages through assessment of tree constraints, making appropriate design layout alterations where appropriate.
We can offer years of experience with an emphasis on detail and advice to provide our clients with the appropriate support they require for their needs.

We provide Arboricultural Constraints Assessments to aid design and Arboricultural Impact Assessments (AIA) and Arboricultural Method Statements (AMS) to aid your planning application and development design layout proposals.

Please contact us for further details.
